About ApricotKing

Since 1946, the Gonzales family has grown the rare and fabulous California Blenheim apricots. Grown on our Hollister ranch, we continue to be the farmer, pruner, dryer, packer, and seller of the vanishing Blenheim apricot. We produce the best tasting apricots in the world all "Home Grown in the Flavor Zone"!

In addition to our incredible dried apricots, be sure to discover our variety of nuts (walnuts, pistachios, almonds) and other dried fruits (peaches, pears, prunes, and more). For those who believe less is more, we have dark and delicious unsulfured dried apricots. And don't forget our sweet and tart selection of apricot jams and syrups as well as our decadent chocolate covered fruits and nuts.  Simply delicious! Everything here on the ranch is organically grown.

Apricot Leathers 16 oz

And they're back.....the 2021 crop of leathers is eeeeeexcelent.

The wildly popular and fabulously sweet leathers are what the old timers request.

This is fruit done the "old fashioned" way - overripe fruit pulled off the tray, lightly rinsed and very, very sun-dried. 

They are intensely flavored, firm & dry, & extra sweet,  and they're SLABS.

No water weight; just the fruit .....bone dry texture....it's fight to the finish on these apricots.

16 oz bags

If you like your cots soft and tender, order any of our other slabs.

These leather are labor intensive and difficult to clean and hand packed. 

Leathers are always the first product we run out of each season.

  1. Husband pleasin'

    Posted by Susie Fasanaro on Dec 6th 2020

    These are my husband's absolute favorite dried apricots!
    He likes the chewy goodness without the squishy sweetness that often comes with dried fruit.
    I ordered 2 bags, one that we just finished, and one that I hid for Santa to bring. (o:

  2. The Very Best

    Posted by Unknown on Nov 17th 2020

    I finally found the best place to get dried apricots.

  3. Great Apricots

    Posted by John C, San Antonio, TX on Nov 2nd 2020

    I've been looking for extra dry apricots for what seems like years and I found them in these leathers! They are the absolute best. My only problem is that I only ordered three pounds. I could eat 10 in no time. I will definitely order more.

  4. My favorite!

    Posted by Dede H. on Sep 30th 2020

    The leathers are my favorites!

  5. Leathers are exceptional

    Posted by Will on Sep 18th 2020

    For many years I have been ordering Apricot Leathers In late Summer from Apricot King - these are truly exceptional in taste and consistency - please support this family of growers to ensure they continue to supply these wonderful dried fruits for generations to come

  6. Wish it was a bottem-less bag

    Posted by Susie on Sep 13th 2020

    My husband just loves these leathers. I bought him a bag for his birthday and they were gone in 2 days! Should've bought him 6 bags!

  7. Never eat another dried apricot!

    Posted by Suzanne on May 20th 2020

    Apricot King is simply the best. I would never waste a dime on buying any other kind of dried apricots! There is simply no other in their class.

  8. So Glad I Discovered Where to Buy These

    Posted by Laurie on May 18th 2020

    After many years of not being able to find decent dried "leathers", which used to be widely available i discovered the Apricot King site and went crazy ordering. So glad I did, these leathers are exactly what I remember from when I was a kid growing up. I was thinking of making some muffins with them in it but then figured I'd rather continue eating them out of hand!

  9. Leathers are great

    Posted by Unknown on Apr 19th 2020

    I always love the leathers. Wished I would have received the free apricot jam.

  10. Great for snacking

    Posted by Jenni on Mar 17th 2020

    Very firm and delicious! Perfect for snacking or eating with yogurt/muesli. Will definitely order again!
